-the transformation and struggle of a mermaid surrendering to human form-
Who would be
A mermaid fair,
Combing her hair
Under the sea,
In a golden curl
With a comb of pearl,
On a throne?
I would be a mermaid fair;
I would sing to myself the whole of the day;
With a comb of pearl I would comb my hair;
And still as I comb I would sing and say,
“Who is it loves me? who loves not me?”
blogging this amazing photo set later today.
I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid, on a dolphin’s back,
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song;
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid’s music.
I am speechless. This is definitely a mermaid’s dream come true. The set design to the clothes…are AMAZING :) Every detail is so subtle…nothing too literal. Lagerfeld you are our inspiration and role-model!
Clever Karl and the Chanel team consistently achieve new found levels of aspiration from the collection. But it’s a wonderful contradiction that still, despite reigning on a pedestal, there are entry points to this world. The sell-out tattoo transfers of yesteryear have been replaced by stick-on pearls that tracked along the spine giving a beautiful, alluring finish to a backless dress. Pearls were also used as hair-pins, and we’d suggest a call to your nearest boutique to get on the waiting list pronto. With silver block-heeled futuristic booties or high-backed sandals, the overtly feminine collection was given the perfect tougher grounding. A triumphant show which less us a little bit speechless.

Two Snow White films to be released around the same time…
One is directed by Rupert Sanders (who I think this is his first full feature film) Who seems to be taking a darker gritty approach
and the other is directed by Tarsem Singh (The Fall, Immortals, and The Cell). Who is probably taking a more surreal approach
Indeed! Can’t wait to see these pan out.
Also heard there will be two different versions of the Little Mermaid coming out next year, one by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) and Shana Fest (Country Strong) with Mermaid: A Twist on a Classic Tale
I loved Prada’s 2011 Fall Line.
I loved it even more in Elle’s cover with Emma Stone and Emma Watson in Vogue.
